I can find no better way to express how important it is for the modern jeeper to never forget that these are “our lands; in our hands.”

America is ours.  Our roads, trails and interesting places to explore are OUR history and our right to enjoy.  Now of course, we MUST do it responsibly. But we must all do our part to keep our lands in our hands.

It is all about land stewardship – meaning the caring, responsible management and use of our lands.  If we the jeepers do not take care of, adopt and be responsible for our lands and our playgrounds, “they” will be glad to take them away from us.

 

Being a good steward is founded in a few key principles.

  1. Always set the example and wheel responsibly.
  2. Follow the rules and obey the laws.
  3. Pack out your trash.
  4. Be courteous to others, and different trail users.
  5. Do not “be the drip” by letting your jeep be the one leaking fluids.
  6. Join “friends” groups or adopt-a-trail clubs that work on your favorite trails.
  7. Join and donate to organized recreation groups like BlueRibbon Coalition nationally, and the Calif. 4Wheel Drive Assoc. in CA.

 

If we all thought of our public lands and wheeling areas like our own back yard, I think we would have a new level of respect for those lands.  That is what we need to do if we still want to be modern jeepers down the road.  Just remember, these are our lands; in our hands.
